the project

My plan with is to set up yoga programs for inner-city youth in my community as well as adults at a disadvantage in areas that have little to no programs set up for health and fitness. Yoga has been proven to show positive improvements in behavior in children, lowers stress and boosts confidence. 

the steps

I'm actively reaching out to and have made some valuable connections with instructors and advisors in the community that are dedicated to finding solutions to these issues. We have secured our first space for a youth yoga program at a community center in the area and are aggressively seeking out more. I will continue to spread our cause through word of mouth and social media and seek out help from others that share my concerns and want to see a positive change.

why we're doing it

There is a huge need in the community for health and fitness programs -- especially in struggling neighborhoods where there are little to no resources. I also have 8 years of experience as a security officer in Akron Public Schools and have seen very disturbing behavior patterns develop. If we get to kids early in life with these yoga programs, we can slowly begin to improve their behavior, thereby creating a much better environment in our communities.
